a long time, when the c.i.a. for 25 years, now he's been with the obama administration as a national security advisor for four years. and while he was not the architect of the drone program itself, he has been the architect of the obama administration drone program. and i came away from there with the feeling that i had going in that there is a definite direction of not capturing these high value targets and soliciting information from them through detention and interrogation. >> but because he said that it's ideal or preferrable to capture them so you can get intelligence. >> yet when i asked him how many high value targets they had captured in the last four years on the obama administration, he dodged and weaved there. >> he said he would get back to you with a number. >> the fact is, i know what the number is. it's one. he allude to do it a little later in his testimony. we captured a guy, we put him on a ship for 60 days and sailed around in the ocean, interrogated him. you know, that's not a detention interrogation policy that can be -- >> brennan also, as mike emmanuel pointed
could be achieved in the new obama administration, the second term you about it is ultimately the supreme leader who calls the shots. certainly the fact that iran told the u.n. nuclear watchdog last week it was going to be deploying a significant number of second generation centrifuges that can spin uranium three times as fast as ones currently used is not a sign of stepping back, jenna. it is certainly a sign of moving quickly along. there are some experts who think that actually more rigorous, intensive, sustained negotiations at this point will be more useful than sanctions. then there are different opinions at this point about this point of no return. some say it his iran has enough fissile materiel it could make a nuclear warhead. and that would be this summer by many estimates. others are saying that red line point is when iran can do that but do it in a way that is undetected by world powers so they won't really have an opportunity to respond in time. and some experts are frankly saying iran is already at this point is a nuclear power because it frankly does have the kn

. one of the questions people often ask about the first year of the obama administration. why did you take on health care at the same time we're having all these other issues? the reason was health care is not just a huge moral, social issue also an economic issue. we have to deal with that is something that can be helpful for the economy going forward. if you ask, what is the positive on health care? how is the economy doing? what is the snerkt the economy that is adding jobs? it is the health care sector of the economy. i think it is -- that's partly because it is a dynamic sector coming up with incredible innovations, the amount of exciting discoveries that are looming on the horizon are bigger in health care than other parts of the economy. that's the positive. the hard side is it is a complicated side. the reason why we don't leave health care to the private sector because it is complicated. we don't look at someone on the street and say sorry you don't have insurance so too bad for you. we as society is going to take care of that person. that is what puts the government in this

the president. the mainstream media is giving the obama administration a pass and that needs to stop. martha: we'll hear from the cia, the man who is expected to be the head of the cia, downbrennan, there is so much focus on the drone issue. i want to get your thoughts on that. i know you are supportive of that program overall. do you think that because of the drone issue that john brennan will get a pass on what he knew because we haven't heard from him on that. >> isn't that a good question in the counter terrorism director of the united states has not said one word about the actions he took when he was notified. there is a joint task force by law that is supposed to meet when there is a terrorist attack. they weren't even called into session. i'll ask panetta why that is so. no one has asked john brennan anything about benghazi. he's in the chain of command to do something about it. it's dumbfounding the lack of scrutiny this administration has had regarding benghazi. martha: we know hillary clinton was basically up all night trying to get help in the area from the libyan government. we don't
, the obama administration passed an executive order making carbon a pollutant, therefore allowing the epa to pursue additional regulations that the law itself did not allow them to pursue because congress refused to act. there is a balance, and i hopelessly agrees, between environmental protection and economic growth, recovery, stimulation. that's what we're trying to find right now. we need to make sure we liberate the energy sector as we learn from a series of reports that have the potential to create over a million jobs in the next three years alone if properly allowed through government regulation, not overregulation, to start doing more drilling, to start exploring more energy sources. natural gas which we have an abundance of here in the united states, and we see state by state, shannon, the number of unemployed people in states like north dakota a and ohio and texs are going down in large part because of energy production and energy exploration and states like california where leslie sits have horrendous unemployment, anemic growth, much like the rest of the country. >> shannon: le

who pays? james rosen in d.c. >> you and me shep, as always. good evening. obama administration officials say the cost involved here will be neil even for the insurers providing the contraception because increased access to birth control they say means hugely reduced medical costs in the long run. under the rules proposed by kathleen sebelius today. the insurers will be able to deduct the cost from the user fees they pay the government for obama care's healthcare exchanges. that means taxpayers will foot the bill say critics or else the insurers are apt to pass the cause back to the now exempted religious employers. also not covered by new proposed rules are private sector companies with religious objections. that means lawsuits like the one filed by the hobby lobby which could face fines of over a million dollars a day will likely snake their way towards the supreme court. now, there will be a period of 60 days of public comment with these proposed rules. but they are expected to be finalized by the summer. shep? >> shepard: james rosen a new study reports that more of our vete
brennan's first public testimony as an obama administration official. expect to see fireworks at this confirmation hearing. the real question may be how this 25-year cia veteran handles the public spotlight. in a crisis, it's often john brennan giving president obama's 3:00 a.m. wake-up call. >> i'm not sure he's slept in four years. >> there may be even less sleep in brennan is confirmed as the next ci achlt director. >> i will make sure that the cia has tools it needs. >> tools like drones. brennan has helped establish in saudi arabia and the eastern peninsula democrats are demanding answers involved with the ool kwad da. it's one controversy he faces at the confirmation hearing. there's his role i the leaks like the cyberattack on iran's nuclear program and his knowledge of harsh interrogations when he was at the cia during the george w. bush years. >> the american public sen titled to know the details of what it was that -- what was his role in the bush administration with the torture program. >> outrage over the interrogation program scuttled brennan's chances to lead the
the capacity to deliver a blow to them. gregg: president obama has repeatedly said and his administration has said the military option is on the table. is that rhetoric in your judgment? is it sincere? does it need you to believe that in the end israel will be forced to act unilaterally? >> what's most important is what do the iranians believe? they don't believe that rhetoric. they have watched us wire brush the israelis in public for inching closer to a military option. the iranians interpret that that we don't have the stomach ourselves for the military option. they don't take it seriously. netanyahu said to us months ago that this summer is when he believes the iranians will cross the red line. and he will be forced to conduct some unilateral military action. it appears that will become a reality. gregg: iran's foreign minister claims his country is set to do a deal with the west to diffuse the situation. is that just a ploy, they are borrowing a page out of the iranian nuclear play book? it's a shell game and they are playing us? >> if you asked any american on the street. put a micropho
